Germany: The two-car B80D tram, built by the German company Duewag in 1988, was refurbished at the Berlin plant.

The body was completely repaired and repainted, the doors replaced and the interior renewed. The tram was fitted with multifunctional areas, ramps and a driver’s cab. Part of the work (repair of bogies and some electrical equipment) was carried out by Bogestra, a local transport operator.

The refurbished tram, named B80-Neo, is currently being commissioned at the depot. After tests and trial runs, it will be put into service in the autumn. The trainset will run in multiple, i.e. the first and second overhauled trams will run together. Stadler is carrying out the city’s trams as part of the 2019 contract. The company has already delivered six new TANGO trams under this contract and will refurbish all 25 B80D trams over the next four years.
